In August 2016, Baton Rouge and areas throughout Southeast Louisiana were devastated by historic floods, leaving 110,000 homes affected. Almost a year later, many are still working to get back into their homes. On July 15, Evacuteer teams up with national nonprofit, All Hands, to call on our friends in New Orleans for a build day in Baton Rouge.
Evacuteers and volunteers from the New Orleans area are invited to join us for a build day with All Hands Volunteers in Baton Rouge! We will be working on the home of a flood-affected family. You will receive training on site. Just bring your able bodies and strong arms!
